History:There are a couple of conflicting stories on why this Half Pipe never opened.  Story #1 comes from the web and states complaints from the community about noise prevented the opening.  Story #2 is from Intamin who states the problem is with the structure of the building.  While the building is capable of handing the weight of the roller coaster, the lateral forces presented an unexpected problem and is why the roller coaster never opened.
